This is odd, I switched away from lilo when I was dual booting two Linux OS's. The things you are talking about being good are the reasons I switched. lol I been using grub, legacy, for a long time and I have no complaints about it. For me, it works better than lilo ever did. The new grub may change things tho. May being the key word. Dale :-) :-) -- I am only responsible for what I said ... Not for what you understood or how you interpreted my words!
